So our next block pays homage to our trusty rotary cutters. Where would be without them? I’d probably not be quilting as it would take me so long to cut everything with scissors.
Of course there is a perfect opportunity for a bit of fussy cutting in this one. I decided to use one of my sewing prints in my “cut block”. I used Color Weave for the background, and Running Stitch for the “ruler”. I probably should put some horizontal lines on it and likely will when I put all my blocks together. I have kept the paper on mine to keep the blocks in shape until I’m ready to stitch them together. So embellishing must wait.
Here are my blocks altogether so far. The observant amongst you will notice there’s one missing. That’s right. I haven’t done the Spools block yet and it’s my very own BoM. I’m hanging my head in shame. I promise it will get done. Probably the night before I post about putting all the blocks together hehe.
So! Your turn to make a rotary cutter block! The pattern is now available for free in my Craftsy shop. The rest of them are working for their keep. Sorry. But there are bills to be paid and a fabric addiction to feed.
When you’ve made your awesome block, and I have faith that it will be in awesome, come back here and link it up to share its awesomeness. Plus – then you’re in for a chance at a prize. Yay prizes!
This month you have a chance to win one of these great prizes!
